 ATAHK has established three more branches offices in Hainan, namely, Hainan Business Incubating Co., Ltd in the innovative and venture base in Yanfeng Town, Haikou City, and another two branch offices in Changsai Town, Wenchang City and Jiangan Town, Anding County, in the hope of serving variuso demands of investors, business owners as well as farmers.

Hainan Province was established in April 1988. The jurisdiction covers Hainan Island, Paracel Islands, Macclesfield Islands and Spratly Islands as well as their surrounding water areas. It covers a land area of 35.4 thousand square kilometers and a water surface of about 2 million square kilometers. It is the smallest province in terms of its land area, yet the largest province in terms of its water territories.
Investment Climate in Hainan

Situated at the southernmost tip of China, Hainan overlooks Guangdong across the Qiongzhou Strait to the north, Vietnam across the Beibu Bay to the west and Taiwan across the South China Sea to the east. Its neighbors in the South China Sea include the Philippines, Brunei and Malaysia.

Hainan's economy is predominantly agricultural, and more than a half of the island's exports are agricultural products. Hainan's elevation to province-level status (1988), however, was accompanied by its designation as China's largest "special economic zone", the intent being to hasten the development of the island's plentiful resources.

Prior to this, the province had a reputation for being a "Wild West" area, largely untouched by industrialization; even today there are relatively few factories in the province. Tourism plays an important part of Hainan's economy, thanks largely to its tropical beaches and lush forests.

As China's only tropical island, Hainan has jurisdiction over 2 million square kilometers of sea area and enjoys abundant land and marine resources. Among over 4600 kinds of plants, 800-odd plant species have high economic value and 600 plant species are indigenous to Hainan. There are 37 kinds of exploitable mineral resources, including iron, glass, quartz sand, titanium and natural gas.

Moreover, Hainan boasts of nearly 30 million square kilometers of high-yield fisheries. Along its 1,530-kilometer coastline, there are 25.7 thousand hectares of coastal tidal flats for aquaculture. Among its aquatic products, redfish, crabs, shrimps, blood clams and pearls are well-known.
